New Chairman - Scott Bolton

Since our AGM the position of Chairman has been vacant.

Scott Bolton has agreed to accept the nomination from that meeting and step up from the position of Vice Chairman to Chairman.  

We hope that all members will give Scott their support and help in the coming year, especially with the proposed gulf net and line review happening this season.
